I feel like each day is a blessing and that "everything is gonna be ok now" I know that is unrealistic- I mean anything can happen, but I do feel a sense of relief.
The only scary issue now is the diabetes.
I got some really freaky #'s recently, but I decided to take best 2 out of 3 with the results and continue on the current course of treatment/insulin.
(It only seems to occur during the night. My fasting rate.)
I am kinda axious about every little ache/pain,But I feel reassured.
I never felt so much"baby" last time.
During (Bella's)nst's they would lose her trace every 5 minutes, now she(Catalina) is on all the time, I don't think there is so much swimming room.
To think that in 3 weeks I will/could, have a baby considered full term!!!WHOO-HOO!
I didn't do anything differently.
Except I followed the ADA gestational diabetes diet, and slowly lost 20 pounds. *I think in my heart of hearts that really helped.
Lots of testing.(blood/nst's/afi's/labs/4wk Level II's)
I went through a full screening for blood/clotting disorders, (and after more than a month of waiting.....) I came up clean (negative).
Hang in there Tahoe, keep us posted!!!
